A Splendid Read 13 Aug. 2009
By Lilith Amok - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A wonderful look at life in Africa in the first half of the 20th century. The stories, many auto biographical, are exciting and well written. Several stories are especially geared toward admirers
of the horse. Most are great stories for young people and teens.

A good read, but not West with the Night 10 Sept. 2012
By Rose M. Griffith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
When I read a writer such as Beryl Markham, I like to read the auto-biographical stories the best. Those essays were utterly wonderful. The fictional stories were okay, but on the romantic side. I'm not a fan of romance writing. This wouldn't stop me from reading anything else by Beryl; it even made me want to go back and read West With the Night.

After reading Markham's "West in the Night" I was anxious ... 28 July 2014
By Lucy Lu - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
After reading Markham's "West in the Night" I was anxious to read more on the life of Beryl Markham. "Splendid Outcaste" is a group of short stories writting by Markham for popular magazines of the day and compiled by Mary Lowell. Some of the stories are historical fiction, some are pure fiction and some are auto bio. All are prefaced by Lowell with "the rest of the story". It was an enjoyable read but not up to "West of the Night".
why I loved the "Splendid Outcast" 10 Jan. 2014
By Ingrid Larnis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Beryl Markham wasn't just an over the top woman...she was an expert thoroughbred trainer, an accomplished pilot,
and a fantastic writer! I share her stories with many friends. So many have never heard of her. She was amazing
especially in her time.
The Splendid Outcast: Beryl Markham's African Stories 11 Mar. 2013
By Miles Gilbert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The Splendid Outcast: Beryl Markham's African Stories is a welcome addition to her autobiography WEST WITH THE NIGHT, and the biographic film SHADOW ON THE SUN. Ernest Hemingway admitted that she was a better writer than he was and who am I to say otherwise?
